Currently in the midst of a massive tour encompassing the USA, Russia, Europe and the UK, modernist pop quintet Architecture in Helsinki are thrilled to announce their most extensive Australian tour in years.
After stunning crowds on the Groovin’ The Moo tour and a brief run of headline dates in May, including a dazzling show at the Opera House as part of Vivid, AIH will be trekking across Australia over August and September.
The band’s second single Escapee has just been released from their pop opus ‘Moment Bends’, accompanied by a beautiful video directed by Marcus Soderlund (The XX, Miike Snow) in Belgium. As effortless and infectious as a pop song can be, Escapee was the last track written and recorded during the albums’ two year gestation.
Frontman Cameron Bird says, “Sometimes songs happen in 10 minutes like some sort of crazy chemical reaction, ‘Escapee’ was as instantaneous and un-complicated as songs happen in our world. Probably why it still makes me feel so good when I hear it!”
Supported by triple j and Channel [V], the tour will see the band hitting up most capitol cities along with rare performances in Cairns, Wollongong, and Newcastle. Don’t miss this chance to see why the world’s falling in love with ‘Moment Bends’ and Architecture in Helsinki’s transcendently joyous live shows.
